(1840 - 1910). Oil on canvas; 21" x 26"; well listed. Goodwin was the son of E.W. Goodwin of western New York, also a painter. After studying with his father and at NYC following the Civil War, was an itinerant portrait painter in upstate NY. In the 1880s he interned still life. His "earliest known cabin door picture dated 1889" and was based on Harnett's "After the Hunt." Like Harnett, he used devices such as a floating feather and the appearance of an incised signature. The most famous Goodwin work was "Theodore Roosevelt's Cabin Door" painted for the Lewis & Clark Centennial in Portland in 1905. The painting incorporated a view of the door of a Dakota hunting cabin that was exhibited at the Centennial. The price of the painting was $2500, but the Roosevelt admirers could not raise sufficient funds to buy it. Considered one of the best painters of "Hanging Game." Work displayed at the Smithsonian and many other important exhibits. Framed.
